Latest SPAC News: Law professor takes deal sponsor to court, and CEO of Wisk Aero predicts electric air taxi shakeout


Enemy of the SPAC: Law Professor Takes Deal Sponsors to Court

Stanford Law Professor Michael Klausner toiled in academic obscurity for decades until 2020, when he wrote a paper slamming special purpose acquisition companies as a rip-off of everyday investors.

Chief of Boeing-backed electric air taxi venture predicts sector ‘shakeout’

The number of companies in the electric air taxi industry is expected to shrink next year as investors tighten their belts amid global economic uncertainty and focus on projects they believe will come to fruition, the chief executive of a Boeing-backed venture has said. “I expect more shakeout next year,” Gary Gysin, chief executive of Wisk Aero, told the Financial Times in an interview. “I would expect two or three more that don’t make it through 2023.”

Investors last year poured close to $7bn into the market for all types of future air mobility solutions, mainly through SPAC such as Joby (NYSE:JOBY) which combined with Reinvent Technology Partners, according to data from McKinsey. While all kinds of vehicles, from cargo planes to surveillance drones, are planned, almost 75 per cent of the money went to companies developing manned electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) craft.
